Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Miami neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's penthouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,500.
↑This fully furnished 1-bedroom 1-bathroom guesthouse in Coconut Grove includes everything: a parking spot, cable, Wi-Fi, water, and even electric. The appliances, however, leave much to be desired—that 'stackable' washer/dryer, conveniently located in the kitchen, can probably handle another load or two before it kicks, and good luck reaching the toaster oven unless you're 6'8". The guesthouse will run you $1,500/month.
↑Edgewater, once home to sketchy transients, has flourished in recent years thanks to the scarcity of waterfront property and zealous developers. Amid the recent construction boom, prices have risen dramatically, but deals can still be found. Check out this fully furnished waterfront studio, complete with panoramic views of the bay, ample storage space, and bubblegum pink mosaic tile in the bathroom. Asking $1,450/month.
↑If you want to capture that Brickell atmosphere (high density, decent amenities, skyline views, and terrible traffic) without the hefty price tag, consider Coral Way. This 1-bedroom 1-bathroom corner unit, located on the 14th floor, has unobstructed views of Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, and Downtown. Rent is $1,550/month.
↑Live large in Homestead with this 5-bedroom 3-bathroom for just $1,550/month. The 2-story home is over 2,200 square feet (its only outstanding attribute), and includes a private backyard overlooking the canal. Enjoy the space, but keep an eye out for hungry intruders.
↑This 1-bedroom 1.5-bathroom Penthouse, located in North Beach at 58th and Collins, boasts remarkable views of the intracoastal and Atlantic. The interior, however, is reminiscent of a Panama City Beach motel (circa 1990), but at $1,550/month it is worth considering.
